Due to Covid restrictions packing will need to be different this year. Confirmation class will be packing the baskets during class on November 11th. Christian Education families will be distributing baskets on the days to follow. Unfortunately, we can’t have the mass of volunteers like years past. If you have any questions please contact Sara Wynn.
Please join us in providing essential hygienic needs to those who have to choose between buying food or laundry soap. Contribute by check designated to Essentials Baskets online by clicking below.
Families who rely on SNAP–Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program–cannot use this program to buy essentials such as toilet paper, women’s hygiene products, diapers, nail clippers, razors, toothbrushes, and so on. This year First Congregational UCC partnered with several local service agencies (Bethany Children & Families, Christian Care, Healthy Families, Family Resources, Help at Home, Salvation Army, Winnies Place) to provide baskets filled with basic essential items to distribute to members of our community.
Thank you to everyone who helped prepare, pack and deliver these baskets last November!
Things will look different this year but we hope to be packing Thanksgiving Essential Baskets on November 14th – 15th, 2020.
